A Tory political demonstration and we are paying for it

"The old saw that one shouldn’t speak ill of the recently dead cannot possibly apply to controversial figures in public life. It certainly didn’t apply to President Hugo Chavez who predeceased Margaret Thatcher amidst a blizzard of abuse." (George Galloway)

 It is nothing but hypocrisy when the same Tory blowhards who rubbished Chavez now start being pious.

I do not see eye to eye with George Galloway but no other member of parliament seems to want to speak up. Shame on the whole shower.

The government is intent on making Thatcher's funeral into a political demonstration and using the police to silence anyone who doesn't like it. She would have loved that.

When we bury Thatcherism it will not be a cause for grief but for celebration.
